I have a big riding goal for the year. I probably won’t meet that. How many other goals should I take on? How can I participate in Suzanne’s Cycle Days Challenge? These were the things I pondered back in May.
I decided that one way the Cycle Days Challenge could help me get closer to my mileage goal for the year would be to take a picture somewhere along each ride I took on a weekday after work. This would make me want to go ride more after a long day at work… because it would be embarrassing to only have a couple photos to show for any one month.
I decided I would try to take the picture in the same spot on the rail trail each day – when I use that route. That way I could kinda track what the different seasons looked like at a similar time of day (between 4.30 and 5.30 pm each day). On the days I didn’t use the rail trail, the photo would just be somewhere along whatever route I used.
I work 4 days a week – these photos don’t include weekend rides. For June, I managed a ride on 11 of 17 work days. Please see the video for a 30 second summary. Please, please excuse the crappiness of the video – it is the best I could do in 10 minutes with the ‘not-so-great-I-wish-they-still-had-Moviemaker’ video capabilities in Windows 10 photos. I did not have the patience or energy to work on it longer. All photos are with my phone – so pic quality at dusk is not so ‘flash’.
I present to you my entry for the Cycle Days Challenge – June
